ACE Eddies Nominate Usual Suspects

ACE Eddies Nominate Usual Suspects

The American Cinema Editors have nominated the five films that have become the clear frontrunners in this year’s awards race for their annual ACE Eddie Awards. In the awards’ Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) category, which often lines up perfectly with Oscar’s choices, “Black Swan,” “The Fighter,” “Inception,” “The King’s Speech” and “The Social Network” were the nominees, which are the same five nominees that the DGA honored last week.

The ACE Eddies also nominated films in three other cinematic categories: Best Edited Feature Film (Musical or Comedy), Best Edited Animated Film, and Best Edited Documentary. Check out a list of the nominees in each category below, and of all the announced awards so far this year here.
